On this page you will have the possibility to perform cellular thickness analysis as never before: in 3D and stain free! Enjoy and stay tuned: the list of results grows every week…
3D Cell Explorer allows for:
- Hydrogel thickness quality check measure
- Cellular thickness dynamic variations real-time monitoring
Cells change shape constantly as they move and divide, but the measurement of cell thickness is difficult. Most of the current microscopy techniques can measure the dimensions in the X and Y axes very accurately but are unable to measure the cell in the Z axis. The 3D Cell Explorer allows you to measure in Real-Time the thickness of living cells in a completely marker-free way.
Cellular thickness monitoring during mitosis
Fibroblastic Reticular Cells (FRCs) were grown to 60% confluency in complete DMEM medium (Dulbecco’s Modified Eagle Medium) in 35mm glass bottom culture dishes (FluoroDishes™ WPI, #FD35-100). The time-lapse imaging experiment was conducted with a standard top-stage incubator set to 37°C and 5% CO2 for 45 minutes, capturing images every 30 seconds.
